Most exciting part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts announcement? Dog squadmate.

I intensely hate everything about this piece of shit
The only game that might be intresting is quantum break, but they didnt show any gameplay
But its no alan wake 2, so this console already failed for me

I wanna wait to see more games, and I hope it doesn't have to be connected online just to play. Right now though Sony, and Microsoft I just wanna stand back, and see how they turn out.

The fact that they ended the presentation with CoD: Ghosts to me shows that they try to thinly veil over the middle bits which didn't really contain that much interesting stuff (NFL partnership, whoooo...). What they basically want people to remember is: "You no longer have to use the remote to switch between television and games...and CALL OF DUTY!". This was such a weak presentation given the hype that has surrounded it.

Also, does the Xbox have a HDD? To me the way they were banging on about the Cloud sounds a little disconcerting given the "always online" rumours.

The online rumor has just been officially denounced. So yea it doesn't have to be online connected 24/7.

So now it's more accessible to watch your TV while on your Xbox? Because if I really wanted to watch TV, I wouldn't be on the Xbox in the first place.

Way to blue-balls us, Microsoft.

List of games

Thought I might as well post this here not make a whole new thread here's the list of confirmed games. Microsoft has one new exclusive coming out Quantum Break didn't really show it off though I'm sure we will see more titles at E3 anyways. Microsoft promised it has more exclusives to share.

From what I have seen microsoft reveal was better than sony, we actually see the console. Main thing will be games and I wont buy either immediately.....so can make the decision based on what I see in the first year or so of release.

To be fair I am a way off using up my Elite HD space, it all depends on how big save game files are etc.

Ultimately, this didn't feel like a games console launch but rather a multimedia platform with a games console attachment. Microsoft are treading dangerous territory here, especially if they lean to more "casual entertainment" they risk alienating a lot of core gaming fans. Although, I expect the fact a lot of people will not want to lose their GS and achievement stats mean that people will buy it regardless.

My brand loyalty however is to whoever makes the best gaming console. Failing that, a return to PC gaming might just be on the cards.

Yea that's the worry, that games consoles are actually more like total entertainment devices, which is fine as long as they still make great games. Like I don't play Kinect or Wii, I see a games console as sat on my backside with a controller. It's relaxing time when I get a break from my kids and work lol.

Also the speculation around whether you can play used (second hand games) will have a huge impact on my decision. Not sure how all this will work yet but people are suggesting that a game is connected to an Xbox Live account meaning if you buy a 2nd hand game you have to pay a fee to unblock it. If that is the case and Sony allows you to play 2nd hand games, only one winner. It would be suicide to do this.

To me neither console has a for sure decision to me yet except Wii U. Out of PS4, and ONE (lol feels funny saying that) it's really coming down to what games are going to be released by end of next year microsoft hasn't driven me away from it with the Kinect it's the future I watched futuristic movies since I was little talking to your console telling it what to do seems fitting lol. Yea I'm just going to wait though I want to see games for each before making a major decision, and price wooh let's not forget that I got to see how much they cost. Really though both Sony, and Microsoft are talking a lot of game throwing out a big # of exclusive titles they're planning on releasing in the future.

I wasnt reallt talking about the HDD space, but about how doesnt feel like a console anymore
I hate all the games they showed besides quantum break, about witch i dont know anything yet, but im extremely dissapointed that its not alan wake 2
And all the casual bullshit just doesnt intrest me at all

I was disspointed how much casual stuff the PS4 had already, but at least they showed some good games
There just was nothing at all here for hardcore gamers, besides maybe COD witch i hate, and quantum break, witch showed no gameplay

Ivespend a lot of time getting achievements, but i wont get this media centre for a long while after release, it all depends on how good the exclusive games are
And right now, theres nothing of intrest for me here
